It is amazing to see just how much of our US history took place during Dad's life.

James Ray Sargent, my dad, was the first born of two, and at the end of PROHIBITION and just at the beginning of the GREAT DEPRESSION. Daddy came into the world just after  Franklin Delano Roosevelt became president.  The 3 R's were part of his early years~relief, recovery, and reform

MAJOR HISTORICAL EVENTS of his life time-WORLD WAR 2 (age 6 to 12), bombing of both Hiroshima and Nagasaki (age 12),

PRESIDENTS of his life time-Roosevelt, Truman, Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson, Nixion, Ford, Carter, Reagan, Bush, Clinton, GWBush
